Welcome to the
Unlimited Newsletter...

June is here, which means summer is officially just around the corner! I love the relaxed vibe that seems to be everywhere at this time of year. Strolling down the street, I see people enjoying drinks on the patio with friends and an array of colourful flowers popping up all around. It just seems as if the world is more alive right now!

In keeping with the relaxed vibe of summer, I would like to give you a special look at my brand new and free "Learn to Meditate" video. This video was inspired by a new Mom returning from maternity leave to her busy management position. We can all benefit from time to unwind - whether sitting on a patio, meditating or going for a hike.

Enjoy the ride!

Why I Drive My Life Like a Corvette...


Since the time I was a very young girl, I've always been attracted to cars, particularly Corvettes. At the age of 4, I had my first Corvette dinky car. And in my twenties, it's not surprising I was working at General Motors. I have always dreamed of owning a Corvette. I think I secretly felt inside that when I owned this car then I would really know I had made it in this world.

So you can imagine the amazing feeling I had the first time I sat behind the wheel and took this car home. I was on top of the world! I remember looking in store windows as I drove by just to see the reflection of me driving this eye-catching car. I drove it fast and a Corvette is meant to be driven, right?

Around this time in my life, I started to learn what real stress was all about. Learn more about this...

Turn Adversaries into Allies Anyone who has faced rivals at work — bosses who take all the credit, team members who undermine things — knows how difficult it is to ignore them. Instead, turn your adversaries into collaborators by following the three steps.

The World's Most Powerful Celebrities It used to be enough for a celebrity to act or sing really well. Today celebs need to be businesses. No one embodies that more than our No. 1 celebrity, Jennifer Lopez. With $52 million in earnings and tons of fame, she's a state-of-the-art success story.

Today's Tip: Thinking of A Job Change?
Asking the right questions is the key to finding innovative solutions to any problem, even finding a job. Instead of asking 'What job can I find today?' what if you ask 'What kind of job can I create today?' The slight twist of one word might hold the key to more helpful answers.

Take a few minutes to write down questions about your 'dream' job. For example, 'How can I make a bucket of money?; may change to 'What will make me happy for the long term?' This could morph into ''How do I create something for the long term?'

Sometimes we get more real answers when we start to ask more questions.
